NewSmile braces
Affordable and convenient teeth straightening

Read this NewSmile review to help you figure out if these aligners are the best option for you.

NewSmile is a type of clear braces for adults and teens that until recently was only available in Canada, but after having so much success with patients has gone global.

Treatment with NewSmile is 100% remote, eliminating dental clinic overheads and service costs, resulting in much more affordable treatment than you would get with traditional braces.

Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about NewSmile aligners, including eligibility, cost, and what makes them different from other clear aligner brands.

A review of clear aligners

Before we dive into NewSmile clear aligners, let's do a quick review of clear aligners, or invisible braces, in general.

Clear aligners offer a discreet alternative to traditional braces for straightening teeth. They are clear plastic trays that you wear during the day and at night and offer an affordable solution to the 60% to 70% of the global population who have misaligned teeth.

However, unlike braces, they are removable and must be taken out to eat, drink most liquids, and brush your teeth.

Clear aligners come in a series, each aligner representing a step further in the progression of your teeth straightening treatment. Some invisible braces, like Invisalign, require regular visits with your dentist, while others don't require any in-office visits. NewSmile is the latter kind—you can straighten teeth at home!

There are a lot of brands of clear aligners on the market, but not all offer the same quality of care and service as NewSmile.

What are NewSmile clear aligners?

NewSmile aligners are clear aligners that can help you straighten your teeth from home. Clear aligners are practically invisible, so no one even has to know that you're getting treatment.

NewSmile clear aligners are part of the booming at-home orthodontics industry. One of the reasons this type of aligner is so popular is that they cost much less than traditional braces or Invisalign. They require 22 hours of wear per day, and treatment usually lasts about six months.

Let's have a look at how the NewSmile process works.

How does NewSmile work?

The makers of NewSmile wanted to make getting orthodontic treatment less complicated, and suffice to say, they've succeeded. There are six simple steps to NewSmile treatment. Let's see just how easy the process is.

  1. Smile assessment
    Your first step is to take a quick online smile assessment that will let you know instantly if you are a good candidate for this type of orthodontic treatment. In order to be eligible for most types of at-home clear aligners, including NewSmile, you should only require mild to moderate teeth straightening. Complex cases will require in-office visits and, in some cases, may need to be treated with traditional braces.
  2. Order your impression kit
    If your smile assessment results say that you're eligible for treatment with NewSmile, you will be prompted to enter your payment details so that NewSmile can send you your impression kit. You can choose to order your impression kit only, or you can order the entire package at once. Either way, you'll get a full refund if it turns out you aren't eligible for NewSmile treatment.
  3. Make your impressions
    Once you receive your impression kit in the mail, it's time to make moulds of your teeth. Your kit will come with detailed instructions on how to make perfect moulds. You also have the option (at no additional cost) of doing a 1-on-1 video call with a rep who will walk you through the process if you're unsure about what to do. After you've made your impressions, you then send them back to NewSmile so they can get started on your Treatment Preview.
  4. Treatment Preview
    NewSmile creates a 3D Treatment Preview of your smile that will show you how your smile will change week by week over your 4- to 6-month treatment period. Once you've had a look at your future smile, you can have a video call with an Impression Specialist to make adjustments to your treatment plan before the plan is finalised.
  5. Straighten your teeth
    After you're given the okay, NewSmile creates your aligners and sends you a new set every two weeks. With your aligners, you'll also get free whitening treatments.
  6. Post-treatment retainers
    Once you've completed your treatment and your teeth are perfectly straight, it's time to make sure they stay that way. How? With clear retainers that you'll wear at night. You'll need to wear your retainers every night for the rest of your life for optimal results. Keep in mind that this isn't unique to NewSmile. Every orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign and traditional braces, requires you to wear retainers at night after treatment.

Night aligners

For professionals and others who don't want to wear their aligners during the day, NewSmile now offers night aligners. For the night aligners, the process is exactly the same as it is for normal daytime aligners. The only difference is that you only wear your aligners at night.

Your treatment time will likely extend beyond the typical day-wear treatment time, but many people find that it's worth it to not have to deal with their aligners during the day.

How much does NewSmile cost?

These are much more affordable than regular braces

NewSmile offers both upfront payment and payment plans. You can opt for their ‘Fast Track' payment, which is a lump sum of £1,095 for daytime treatment and £1,195 for the nighttime treatment. This price includes:

  • Impression kit
  • Treatment Preview
  • Aligners
  • Retainers
  • Whitening

Alternatively, you can opt to purchase your impression kit separately for £39. When you are approved for treatment, you can then purchase your aligners, and if you aren't eligible, you can get a full refund on your kit.

Or, if you prefer to spread your payments out, you can opt for their monthly plan. For the daytime option, this requires a £295 deposit, and then payments of £75 per month for 12 months. For the nighttime option, it's a £295 deposit and then £83 per month for 12 months. Monthly plans start at 0% APR.

How is NewSmile different than other aligners?

It's true that there are many similarities between NewSmile and at-home aligner brands. However, there are also some important differences. Let's take a look at them now.

  • Raintree Essix plastic: NewSmile aligners are made from Raintree Essix plastic, which is the clearest plastic for aligners available on the market today.
  • Multiple teeth: The NewSmile aligners work on multiple teeth at once—that's how they keep treatment time so short.
  • Orthodontic supervision: An orthodontist oversees the treatment of each patient.
  • Customer service: NewSmile is dedicated to providing customer service that goes above and beyond. They always have someone available to chat with over the phone about any issues, questions, or concerns you may have. You also can have a 1-on-1 video chat while you make your impressions.
  • Free retainers: With NewSmile, you get two free retainers after you finish treatment.

NewSmile vs Invisalign

You may have heard of Invisalign, as it's one of the leading brands of in-office invisible braces. But you might not know exactly how Invisalign and NewSmile differ, so here's a quick summary

  • NewSmile features remote treatment; Invisalign offers in-office visits
  • NewSmile costs less than £2,000; Invisalign can cost up to £5,500
  • NewSmile is only meant for mild cases; Invisalign can straighten severely crooked teeth

In the end, it's not that one is objectively better than the other, it's that different options are best for different people. While some may be good candidates for NewSmile, others may need the more hands-on treatment that Invisalign or even traditional metal braces offer.

FAQs

Do NewSmile clear aligners hurt?

You may feel some discomfort while wearing NewSmile. Orthodontic treatment involves moving your teeth into a new position, a process that is usually uncomfortable. Since at-home clear aligners are meant to treat mild to moderate cases, and not complex cases, they usually are more comfortable than traditional braces.

Who can have NewSmile aligners?

NewSmile aligners are available to adults and teens who have all of their permanent teeth and have mild to moderate cases of malocclusion (teeth and jaw alignment issues). If you have a complex case, you may need to opt for traditional braces.
